NEW DELHI:With just one more day remaining for the election campaign to officially draw to a close in Delhi, the two main parties, the Aam Aadmi Party and the BJP, have claimed victories citing their own internal surveys. If the AAP is claiming that it will get 51 seats, the BJP’s own survey put its projected tally at 43.

As the February 7 polls are nearing, various media surveys are giving the AAP the reins of the future Delhi government. The party on Wednesday made public its own predictions of a “landslide victory” in the national capital, according to its  internal survey. “The likely scenario is the AAP getting 51 seats, the BJP 15 and  the Congres and others four,” senior party leader Yogendra Yadav said  Meanwhile, the BJP claimed that it got a survey done by professional agency, which has given the saffron party nearly 43 seats. 

The BJP tried to brush aside the survey results of major news channels -- which gave a majority to the AAP -- saying the situation on the ground was different. However, privately many of the BJP leaders said such positive media surveys tend to influence the undecided electorate. After looking at the surveys, they tend to go with the winning side, as they don’t like to waste their votes. 

Yadav said the AAP is likely to get 46 per cent vote share while the BJP will get 33 per cent and the Congress 11 per cent. Others have been projected to get 10 per cent of the total votes.
